Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: WONDERFUL faculty, making so much time for individual meetings, scientific training, support in presenting our work at conferences; flexible requirements, allowing us to complete the coursework that is most relevant to our career; teaching opportunities and TA responsibilities that are not overbearing; little competition within the department Cons: Not sure if there are any, though I should add a caveat that the individual advisor has a lot to do with the success and happiness of the graduate students, so I can understand why certain ratings and experiences might differ!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The core curriculum provides the base knowledge requisite for effective management. This base expertise coupled with the rich experiences and insight offered by students makes the program both a rich and rewarding experience.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Outstanding and supportive faculty who mentor grad students really well; active intellectual environment - mixed faculty/grad student research groups; great library; strong grad student departmental support for things like professional development; great funding. Cons: Small university so less diversity in terms of the variety of departments and thus students - therefore less room for interdisciplinary collaboration or study; campus can feel isolated.
